Simplify by factoring. Assume that all variables in a randicand represent positive real numbers and no randicands involve negative quatities raised to even powers.

Can anyone help :S?

5√2187x^8 y^29

p.s the 5 is supposed to be the 5th root to the numbers inside.

$\sqrt[5]{3^7 \cdot x^8 \cdot y^{29}} = \sqrt[5]{3^5 \cdot 3^2 \cdot x^5 \cdot x^3 \cdot y^{25} \cdot y^4}$

Surely you have some idea what to do. I've done the difficult part for you, now finish it.

$\sqrt[5]{{2187x^8 y^{29} }} = \sqrt[5]{{3^7 x^8 y^{29} }} = 3xy^5 \sqrt[5]{{9x^3 y^4 }}$

then you need to see some lessons on the topic ...

3xy^4?
